Upheaval Alpha Version 0.0.5 is Available (Accessibility, Desktop improvements, & More!)

Hi all! Upheaval Alpha Version 0.0.5 introduces a Windows Console version of Upheaval focused on accessibility (also available as a demo). It also has some good improvements for players on the Windows desktop version of Upheaval. This update is a little lighter on the new content, but it’s got lots of quality of life improvements. :)


  • NEW accessible Windows Console version (including a demo version)! Accessible for screen readers and keyboard-only players. Please let me know if anything is negatively affecting your ability to play this version of Upheaval; I’d love to know, and I’d love to fix it for you. :)
  • New Fullscreen modes for Windows. Press Alt+Enter to cycle through Windowed, Borderless, and Fullscreen modes, or use the new button in the menu.
  • New “Exit to Desktop” menu button on Windows, to go with the new Fullscreen mode.
  • Tap/click the map to zoom in on the area you tapped/clicked (instead of the area you’re currently in).
  • 3x as many possible names for your home town (12 total). Hopefully each world (and save file) feels a little more unique now.
  • New tutorial explaining how searching works. Helpful for new players!
  • Lots of descriptions improved (corrected typos, improved clarity or grammar, etc).
  • You can now resize the game window on Windows.
  • Content on Windows is slightly wider, to make better use of the extra horizontal screen space.
  • Images compressed on Windows build, making the .exe about 33% smaller.
  • Save files are significantly smaller, which should increase performance and make debugging save files easier.
  • When you view past encounters, the choice you actually selected is now marked.
  • The Upheaval icon now shows on the window and in the taskbar on Windows and Windows Console.
  • New Bandit interaction: When you run away, as long as you’re not tired or exhausted, there’s now a 50% chance you’ll escape from them in a random direction.
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn’t see the ranger if you were standing by the tower if the ranger was in the location next to yours.
  • Removed phantom food from the hermit’s hut.
